Yom Ha'Atzmaut
(Israel Independence Day)
The Golani Brigade - Jewish Cavalry Downtown Haifa - 1948

Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name,
 speaks the same language, and worships the same G_d that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins
from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.

- Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   In all these years we've only managed to observe this here twice before (2006 and 2008), so I really don't want to miss it again this year.

   I don't want to spoil the surprise of these videos by describing them. Trust me, you'll want to see them:

From - 04/22/15:

A woman was waiting in the checkout line at a shopping center. Her arms were laden with a mop and broom and other cleaning supplies. By her hard glances and deep sighs, it was obvious she was in hurry and not a happy camper about the slowness of the line.

When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"

"Don't worry, ma'am," replied the clerk. "With a good tail wind and that brand new broom you have there, you'll be home in no time."

HaTikva (The Hope)

The National Anthem of Israel

Written by Naftali Herz Imber (1856-1909)
Melody arranged by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant to Israel from Moldavia, from a musical theme
in Smetana's "Moldau", which is partly based on a Scandinavian folk song

Transliteration התקוה
Kol od balevav p'nimah כל עוד בלבב פנימה
Nefesh Yehudi homiyah נפש יהודי הומיה
Ulfa'atey mizrach kadimah ולפאתי מזרח קדימה
Ayin l'tzion tzofiyah עין לציון צופיה
Od lo avdah tikvatenu עוד לא אבדה תקותנו
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim התקוה בת שנות אלפים
L'hiyot am chofshi b'artzenu להיות עם חופשי בארצנו
Eretz Tzion v'Yerushalayim ארץ ציון וירושלים
  As long as deep in the heart,

The soul of a Jew yearns,

And forward to the East

To Zion, an eye looks

Our hope will not be lost,

The hope of two thousand years,

To be a free nation in our land,

The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
